to:

* GrowingUpSucks: "In the Backseat."." Regine fearfully sings that she prefers watching the scenery from the backseat of a car, associating the driver's seat with growing old and eventually dying. When she gets to the final line, "I've been learning to drive my whole life," she [[HeroicBSOD realizes just what she is saying and begins wailing]].

Added DiffLines:

** "Here Comes the Night Time II" for "Here Comes the Night Time."
* DistinctDoubleAlbum: ''Reflektor''. The first half is looser and toys with rhythmic and dub elements from Jamaica, while the second half sounds like their preceding work. Each disc contains a version of "Here Comes the Night Time", with the second one opening the second disc as a DarkReprise of the first version.

* TheElevenOClockNumber: Not ''exactly,'' but all three albums have perhaps their most epic songs as the penultimate tracks: "Rebellion (Lies)" on ''Funeral'', "No Cars Go" from ''Neon Bible'', and "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" off ''The Suburbs.''

* TheElevenOClockNumber: Not ''exactly,'' but all three four albums have perhaps their most epic songs as the penultimate tracks: "Rebellion (Lies)" on ''Funeral'', "No Cars Go" from ''Neon Bible'', and "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" off ''The Suburbs.''Suburbs'', and "Afterlife" from ''Reflektor''.



** ''Reflektor'' carries on this tradition, with the climactic "Afterlife" being the penultimate track. Disc 1 averts this- "Joan of Arc" is the last track, rather than the second-to-last.


Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Many critics noted that the first half of ''Reflektor'' sounded like the band were thoroughly having fun. In the lead-up to the album's release, the band performed as The Reflektors, an alter ego based around bright carnival attire, and Carribean- and Latin-based percussion.

* ArcWords: "The kids" throughout the band's works, "the neighbourhood/neighbours" in ''Funeral'', "the suburbs" in, well, ''Music/TheSuburbs''.

* ConceptAlbum: All of their albums have at least shades of this: ''Funeral'' focuses on aging, loss, and community; ''Neon Bible'' is darker and fixates on the apocalypse and religion, with television and the ocean also used as motifs; and you get one guess as to what ''The Suburbs'' [[{{Suburbia}} is about]]. ''Reflektor'' returns to religious themes, exploring death, the afterlife, and Myth/GreekMythology.

** The shared titles of the two "Half Light" songs and the two "Sprawl" songs also serve as this for both pairs.
